I'm sure everyone will hate this, and the picture quality is poor.

A visit to a hospital. This is an episode of a 5-minute TV series from the late-1960s. (I uploaded an episode of "Funny You Should Ask" which was followed by this episode of "The Children's Doctor". So if you've already watched "Funny You Should Ask", don't bother with this upload, as it is the same episode).

Song is "Cimarron (Roll On)". Pop music show aired in a 5-minute time-slot. Relative to running time, this series features more advertising than the standard 1950s series.

A series of excerpts from 1954 television. Drawn almost entirely from variety shows. Most of the shows excerpted aired live. I give a 20-second introduction at the start, and look like I had just been hit by a truck, and use a particularly awful double-negative. The clips are from US series....I was unable to get clips from TV from the UK because so little survives of their 1954 TV programming, and of course shows from other countries are virtually impossible to get.
